While I may not love pinterest (short story: you pin things, but don’t do them – and it focuses on what you don’t have instead of what you do) I do really like my wishlist board. It may sound like I’m contradicting myself, but I don’t think so. I pin what my eye is drawn to, and what I love. That way, if I happen to be out and see a similar style at a lower price point, I will know that I really want it and its not an impulse purchase. Also – if I happen to have some extra money on hand – I know exactly how I’d like to spend it.
 
Here are some recent additions to my wishlist – lots of gold and pretty things:

Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re easing into the week nicely. Here are some of the things that are making me smile lately:

Hi friends, sorry for the long absence. Things have been ridiculously busy – in a good way! Lots of fun happening, but doesn’t leave much time for quality blog posts.
 
Things will be light for another week or so, then I’ll get back on track.
 
In the meantime, here are some things that I am LOVING
 
Alice & Olivia
Everything from the collection is just gorgeous. Like this top, that was made for girls night out!
 
Blue & Gold
How great is navy blue and gold together? I’m loving it
 
 
Dainty Details
I’m loving delicate, dainty gold details. Like an anklet or tiny stack rings
 
 
This jacket
Perfection. Super professional and gorgeous. It would look amazing with a bright pink tank underneath.
 
 
These succulents
I want them on my nightstand, on my coffee table, and on my desk at work!

Hi friends. Ok, so I lied about the post yesterday. But here you go! While we don’t have tons of funds for major furniture purchases, I’ve been trying to make small changes that make me love our space even more.
 
But up first – some things that have been around, but I haven’t shown on the blog yet:
 
We put up the bf’s vintage super hero poster in one of the large hallway walls. It adds a fun touch and takes up a large empty wall:
 
Our chandelier provides a nice contrast to the super hero poster and some much needed glamour (and yes, this picture made me realize one of the bulbs is out…..)
This is what I see when I wake up every day. Good way to start the morning:
 
And some new changes:
 
I’m leaving some of my favorite heels out in my bedroom. I love them layered against my Sex & the City movie poster on the floor. It makes me SOO happy every time I look at them:
 
How cute are these plates from Pier 1? They’re classic but fun, and they make me smile. Especially when they’re holding dark chocolate oatmeal cookies.
 
 
I’ve been wanting this pillow for ages, and I finally got it. Doesn’t it look fabulous with the chevron comfortor?
 
 
I’m also keeping some of my favorite nail polishes on my night table, both because I like being surrounded by pretty things, and for easy access:
 
Instead of keeping corks in a boring bowl, I got this amazingly wonderful polka dot glass vase that I’m repurposing to hold corks, for now. On top of my beloved Lauren Conrad and Domino books!
 
 
You like? Hopefully I’ve inspired you to make some small changes around your abode!
 
 
Happy Tuesday! Now that I’m settling back into work, I need some pretty thing to distract me for a moment. Here’s what I’m loving right now:
 
Coming up tomorrow: an apartment decorating update!

Happy Friday! Woo hoo! I’m excited for this one. Its going to involve a local art exhibit that takes place at a wine store – amazing! Plus some packing and cleaning thrown in for good measure…
Here are some things that I’m loving right now.
 
Bemz
Have you heard of this? Its amazing – they make slipcovers for your ikea furniture to make it totally unique and not-ikea looking. They’re a bit pricey, but I’ve got my eye on a few different patterns.
 
 
Wheat:
I LOVE this look for a party – who knew that wheat could be such a chic addition to a tabletop? While its ideal for fall gatherings, with the light white additions here, its perfectly summer appropriate!
 
 
Whats your letter?
I’ve seen these necklaces around the web. They’re so delicate and perfect. I love the “L” but it would also be cute to get the letter of boyfriend/husband/kids if you have them:
And because I’m on a major Marilyn kick lately, some words of wisdom:

Hi friends! Happy Saturday. I’m sharing a bunch of fun things over on the g&g Facebook page – so if you don’t like it already, do it now!
 
And have a lovely Saturday – ideally with lots of pink blossoms:
 

 

Happy Friday – hope you have something fun planned this weekend!
 
LOVE
Have you seen this love print yet? I want it for my gallery wall. Perfect for Valentine’s Day too!
 
 
Ikea Glamour
I saw these side tables and freaked – I want them! Its an Ikea DIY and I can hear it calling my name

I love this – and she’s got red hair!

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday. Is this day super busy for anyone else?  Here is some fun to keep you going:
